ABOUT THIS WINE

Alluvial terraces of sand and gravel, brought by the Vienne (tributary of the Loire). Our region benefits from a temperate, semi-oceanic climate suitable for growing vines. ''Reasoned cultivation'', respectful of the environment with grass between the rows in order to help limit yields and erosion. Leaf stripping, trellising and green harvesting to optimize the maturity and quality of the grapes. Maceration for approximately 12 hours, after destemming and complete sorting of the harvest. Then, fermentation of the musts starts spontaneously thanks to native yeasts. Constant control of vinification temperatures favors the fruity expression of Cabernet Franc. Bottling takes place around Easter.
